I had a great experience kayaking the Nauset Marsh at low tide. Our guide was well-informed and shared with us some very interesting information about the area. We saw amazing wildlife, including over 30 seals only a few meters away from our kayaks. I would definitely sign up for another tour with Jonathan when I visit the Cape again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Nauset Marsh Low Tide paddle with Jonathon. He patiently and expertly gave instruction then guided us through our tour. I'd recommend this to ANYONE, regardless of kayak experience! Jonathon shared his knowledge of the history, geography, wildlife all while gently instructing those new to paddling. Don't miss out, this is an awesome experience!

The High Tide March Tour was great! Meandering through the marsh, being in the midst of seals, strolling the beach, traversing the outgoing current--who could ask for more? But there was much more! Jonathan's explanations of the environment, local history, and changing conditions were fantastic. He also provided excellent instruction on kayaking skills. A very enjoyable experience that I recommend... More

Jonathan was the best! After providing some basic paddling tips, he navigated our family of 6 (ranging from 20 - 75 yrs old) through the low tide marshes, captivating our crew with stories of how they formed, who lived among them and what lives within them. Our hands-on sandbar stop yielded several types of clams which JR enthusiastically shucked and... More

A beautiful trip! Started off in the bay then went into wetlands. Egrets, ospreys, swallows dipping over and around, great blue herons, cormorants. We wound around then got out about a ten minute walk away from Nauset Beach and took at dip in the ocean. Just spectacular. Jonathan is a great guide and what a lucky man he is to... More

Jonathan started us off with an excellent primer on the how-tos of kayaking, use of paddle, steering etc. There were parents and children in tandem in the group, novice, intermediate and expert paddlers. He was able to provide the support and guidance each individual needed throughout the tour. He is extremely knowledgeable about the marsh itself, the ecosystem of the... More

There were six in our party and we took the Nauset Beach Low Tide tour. We had a blast and our tour guide Jonathon was great, knowledgeable, interesting and a pleasure to get to know him. He took us out to where the Seals were waiting to catch the fish coming in with the tide. We saw at least 50... More

My husband and I (both in early 30s, relatively fit but kayaked ~5 times in our lives) did the Pleasant Bay trip on a beautiful Wednesday. Jonathan was a pleasure to work with and made booking and the trip seamless. We had a wonderful time and it was one of the highlights of our week.
